Question about Roper RAS8445KQ Top Load Washer

Roper Washing Machine works after I jolt it

I have a roper washing machine and it will fill with water and go through the wash cycle, but when it gets to the rinse cycle it stops and makes a humming noise, like it is stuck. If I tilt it back a few inches and let fall back to the floor it will start working again. It will then finish the remaining cycles. Before I start buying parts for it, does anyone have any suggestions for me. Thank You Doug

My 5 year old Roper washing machine fills up, washes/agitates the cloths, drains them when the washer get to the rinse line to start the rinse cycle it stops, and all I hear is a humming. The machine will...

I'm not familiar with roper washing machines so I'll ask the question does it have two fill hoses. Most European machines now only have one fill. If it has two then it sound like the machine takes the initial water from the one fill and the rinse cycle water from another. The humming sounds like the valve for the other fill needs replacing. These are quite inexpensive and easy to fit. Power off.. remove lid ....switch of water...take out valve when you establish which one is affected and replace

Roper washer fills with water continuously

Your inlet valve is defective, can be easily changed. Approach your dealer with your model number he will direct you to the spares shop, or tell you where you can get it. Or google 'roper washing machine spares'
